California is experiencing a historic drought. I am proud to partner with Scotts® for this sponsored post to talk about their latest product that can help Californians preserve water at this critical time. Since the beginning of the drought in 2010, most Californians have become aware that there is a drought by this point. With recent discussions and advertisements by the state and various counties, the sense of urgency has increased as it has been declared we are in a severe drought. However, there's a lot of confusion amount residents when it comes to what they can do about it. Not many people are aware of all of the different ways that they can help reduce water usage in their household and preserve this precious resource. The reality is that with no end to the drought in sight, we don't have any of this liquid gold that we can afford to squander.
The drought began shortly after I moved to Canada to be with my husband. Hearing about the drought and the affect it was having on farmers and residents in California really had an impact on me, even while I was abroad. I knew even towards the beginning of the drought the types of drastic and difficult changes that may eventually become necessary as the drought continued. Especially considering the significance of agriculture in California, it meant there were some tough times ahead. Sure enough, farmers have been faced with the difficult decision to let some crops go, focusing their time, energy, and resources on crops that are more profitable and, in many cases, require less water.
We moved back to California in August of 2014, and immediately made changes to our lifestyle in regards to water usage to adjust accordingly. We evaluated our habits and immediately gave up cloth diapering, and started saving and using grey water to water the garden plants. We generally increased our awareness of how much water we were using, and looked for any areas where we could cut back. Not all water saving techniques require a drastic, or even significant, change in lifestyle, but instead take minor adjustments to habits. For example, I only turn on the tap to a slow, steady stream rather than cranking the knob and allowing water to gush from the faucet when I wash my hands, brush my teeth, or take a shower. These little adjustments were about tweaking habits that were, honestly, excessive and wasteful to begin with---drought or no drought. We also switched to a more water efficient toilet, which believe it or not saved a significant amount of water, reducing our bill by more than $50 a month!
